Trip Report


The Lyell Icefield and the Lyell peaks in particular, have had my attention for many years. I’ve been doing trips around them and had glimpses and full on views of their lofty and distinct summits many times. Some of the best views were on my remote ascent of Mount Amery, Monchy and Hooge back in 2012 with Eric Coulthard. One of the issues preventing me from visiting the Lyell Icefields early was the simple problem of access. These peaks are remote!

Spectacular photos of one of the Canadian Rockies' and British Columbia's finest and most remote regions. For all of us who wish we could get there but cannot for various reasons, the time and effort and difficulties being obvious, these photos are wonderful ! Thanks !

Thanks David, and I'm glad you enjoy them.
